Almaden Announces Pathfinder Elements Validate SE Alteration Zone Potential for Epithermal Veining

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Nov. 25, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Almaden Minerals Ltd. (a??Almadena?? or a??the Companya??; TSX: AMM; NYSE American: AAU) is pleased to report the results of initial surface sampling of the veins discovered in the Southeast (a??SEa??) Alteration Zone of the Ixtaca Project.
As announced on November 18th, the Company discovered several areas of veining cropping out within the SE Alteration Zone of the Ixtaca Project while mapping promising clay alteration in the area.Seventeen samples of the veining were collected and submitted for analysis to ALS Global in Zacatecas, Mexico. All but one sample returned below detection gold and silver, with the exception returning a value of 62 ppb gold. However, even though the outcrops are leached and weathered, many of the samples also returned elevated values for epithermal pathfinder elements which are commonly found in the higher parts of epithermal alteration zones.Morgan J. Poliquin, President and CEO of Almaden, stated a??The presence of pathfinder elements in these samples is very encouraging as it corroborates our view that the SE Alteration Zone could represent the higher levels of a potential underlying epithermal system. It is quite typical that the higher parts of these systems contain negligible precious metals values. We look forward to continued mapping, and eventually drilling, in this area.a??About the SE Alteration Zone
